Ordnance Survey, Ten-mile to the Inch Planning Maps of Great Britain, 1940s-1970s

Ordnance Survey, Ten-mile to the Inch Planning Maps of Great Britain, 1940s-1970s graphic

The Ordnance Survey Planning Maps series was initiated during the 1940s, covering the whole of England, Scotland and Wales in two sheets, at a scale of ten miles to the inch, or 1:625,000. Numerous official bodies assisted with providing thematic information, including the Boundary Commissions, the Geological Survey, the Land Utilisation Survey of Great Britain, the Meteorological Office, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, the Ministry of Town and Country Planning, the Ministry for War Transport, and the Department of Health for Scotland. We have scanned below all our out-of-copyright sheets in this series.

These maps have been divided below into the following categories: Administrative, Air, Electricity, Employment, Gas, General, Geology, Historical, Land Utilisation, Physical, Population, Railways, Rainfall, Roads, Valuation Regions.
